Using Development Tools via command line

In order to access many handy .Net tools or BizTalk for that matter, you must navigate to the proper directory first, not an option, or launch Visual Studio .NET 2003 Command Prompt.

A way around this is to add Paths to your system Path Environment variables. To do this, do the following:

  1. Right-click My Computer, click Properties
  2. Click the Advanced tab, then the Environment Variables button
  3. Under System variables select Path, then click Edit
  4. Add the following to the end of the Variable value field:
  5. ;C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\;C:\Program Files\Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004\
Now you can perform the following utilities (and more) from any command prompt: installment, gacutil, ilasm & btsdeploy.
